Sending Clean & Simple Hugs with Jessica

We are looking forward to seeing your Clean and Simple challenge creativity! Your project should feature Lawn Fawn stamps, dies and papers. The Clean and Simple challenge will be open until Sunday, February 20th at 11:59PM ET.

Good morning!  Jess here with a card for our current Clean and Simple challenge!

To start I gathered up all my Lawn Fawn cardstock scraps I keep in a storage pocket and cut them into strips of a variety of widths.  I used Guava, Raspberry, Chili Pepper, Fake Tan, Sunflower, No. 2 Pencil, Cilantro, Mermaid, Peacock, Moonstone, Blue Jay, and Sugar Plum cardstock though you could use cardstocks in the same color family or whatever scraps you happen to have on hand!  I applied adhesive to an A2 panel of white cardstock and then laid the strips on a diagonal pattern.  After I was done, I cut off the excess and was left with an A2 panel. 

Next, I die-cut the Giant Sending Big Hugs die from white cardstock and adhered the negative over my rainbow background.  I laid the sentiment inside the cut out and used it as a guide to adhere all the little pieces (like the inside of the ‘b’).  I stamped the rest of the sentiment from All the Clouds onto Black Licorice cardstock and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder! 

And that’s it!  You have one more weekend to get crafty and I can’t wait to see your clean and simple creations!  Thanks so much for stopping by and have an amazing weekend! -Jess

Thank you for sharing this awesome inspiration, Jess! It’s perfectly clean & simple!

This is the last weekend for the Clean & Simple challenge! We will back on Monday with another fun challenge theme, see you then!

Joyce put the focus on the sweet images and sentiment from Let’s Toast! She framed the little vignette with some hearts and a Fancy Scalloped Rectangle. So cute!

Samantha started with a column of blue watercolor, adding some stenciled stars over the top. Then she brought in a few images from All the Clouds to fill the sky! Her sentiment is a combination from Rain or Shine Before ‘n Afters and All the Clouds.

Caly used the “white space” to create a window with Outside In Stitched Circle Stackables. She filled the window with some tropical leaves stenciling and a cute critter from Hang in There!

Christy‘s sweet design proves that the open space can be any color! She combined Happy Hugs with Giant Sending Big Hugs, layering them on a Quilted Heart Backdrop! The peachy colors are so lovely!

Franci used images from Eggstra Special Easter, colored in bright, happy colors! She added just a little ink blending to define the space then stamped the sentiments in pretty pastel ink colors to create two beautiful clean and simple cards!

Karin created layers of Quilted Heart Backdrop, Lacy Heart Stackables and Fancy Scalloped Rectangle in white. Then she added special detail with a beautifully inked Giant XOXO and Car Critters Christmas Add-On cuties!

Samantha started her clean and simple design with a panel of patterned paper from Really Rainbow! Then she layered two Selfie Frames, filling one with a cute scene that features Bugs and Kisses, and A Bug Deal images! She kept this really simple by using Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper to fill the background in the frames.

Our favorite mermaid is definitely dreaming of beach weather with this simply beautiful Mermaid for You card! Jenn included images from So Jelly and letters from Owen’s ABCs to complete her design!

Let’s see what our amazing Design Team created to inspire us!

Jessica‘s brilliant design features Giant Let it Snow cut from silver glitter cardstock! She made it stand out by layering it on another die cut in Peacock! For the background, she stenciled Snowflake Background Stencils with Pearl Stencil Paste on Let it Shine Snowflakes 6×6 paper! The she added even more frosty fun with Stitched Snowflakes!

Samantha created a fun interactive design that fits perfectly with the Oliver’s Stitched ABCs sentiment! She added the “zoomin'” critter to a strip of acetate that she secured to the Grassy Border with a brad. As the card is tilted the little fox scoots by!

A super fun way to make the sentiment special is to add it to a fun die cut element! Here, Karin stamped the Magic Messages birthday greeting on an Outside In Stitched Balloon! She finished her card with Cloudy Stencils, Spring Sprig flowers and some cute Dandy Day critters!

Samantha‘s Fall themed card is all about the Giant Sending Big Hugs greeting! She added leaves from You Autumn Know and a happy critter from Snow Much Fun!

Christy created a super fun and punny Finley’s ABCs custom sentiment! It’s the perfect greeting for her charming Merry Mice scene! For the background she continued her color story with a Peppermint Stripes Backdrop!

Franci started her delightful pair of cards with a sentiment from Merry Messages! A sweet image from Snow Globe Scenes carries on the holiday theme along with the Let it Shine Snowflakes paper. For some extra detail, she used Stitched Borders on the white panel.

Joyce spelled out Santa’s famous chuckle in Oliver’s Stitched ABCs for her special design! She used images from Ho-Ho-Holidays and Holiday Helpers in this happy scene!

Caly‘s birthday card is absolutely delightful! She paired Giant Happy Birthday with some cute party-goers from Tiny Birthday Friends!
